CPU Benchmark The SysBench system benchmark suite has a simple CPU benchmark tool that calculates prime numbers. For example:
# sysbench --num-threads=8 --test=cpu --cpu-max-prime=100000 run sysbench 0.4.12: multi-threaded system evaluation benchmark Running the test with following options: Number of threads: 8 Doing CPU performance benchmark Threads started! Done. Maximum prime number checked in CPU test: 100000 Test execution summary: total time: 30.4125s total number of events: 10000 total time taken by event execution: 243.
